Brassica Oleracea Var. Italica

120 SEEDS

Di Cicco – Early Broccoli

Brilliant 1890’s italian variety. Bluish-green heads to 10cm then lots of medium sized side shoots. Protect from territorial white moth by using shade cloth, fake moths on sticks or wipe the small eggs off the underside of leaves every morning – this works like a charm.
